The current multi-layered interventional approaches to blood safety have dramatically reduced the risk of viral contamination of blood components. Nowadays most of the residual transfusion transmitted infections (TTI) occur as the result of the interval between the time the donor is infected and the moment at which tests are capable of detecting the agent, the so called "window period" which has been considerably reduced by the increased sensitivity of nucleic acid testing (NAT). However, the… CONTINUE READING
